BURIED BY HAIKU


I'm here
amongst the huge pile of haiku.
Can you see me?
I hope you do.

I've been buried here
and I don't know what to do.
Each time I post a poem..
it gets buried by haiku! !

    MARY...SO GLAD TO HAVE YOU BACK WHERE YOU ROCK SO WELL
    HAIKU IS THE SIMPLEST LOOKING VERSE FORM THAT REQUIRES THE MOST COMPLEX OF IMAGE CONCEPT, AS A PITCTORIAL STORY UNIQUELY
    UNFOLDS IN 17 SYLLABLES....YOUR WORK IS ESPECIALLY UNIQUE AS IT IS A HAIKU ON ITSELF...A DIAMOND CHIP EXAMPLE OF CONTEMPORARY FORM....QUITE CLEVER INDEED, MARY''''''''''''''FRANK (Report) Reply

    Mary
    First instinct-write
    you haiku, then send you shovel,
    or both in one.

    I don't particularly like Haiku, but I have to admit I wrote a boatload of them-a good focusing exercise. Thanks for the smile. Phillip Michael Sawatzky (Report) Reply

    I like your poem(I think!) . Luckily haiku are short so the digging out shouldn't require much effort, no matter how big the pile! -Rick :) (Report) Reply

    I see you Mary! This is beautiful, it made me laugh...nice rhymes. The secret is to wait until John logs out and then post your poem. Good Luck!

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
